WHO IS THE PRODUCT ULTRA COMPETITION® FOR?
ULTRA COMPETITION® was developed especially for the needs of ultra- and long distance athletes. ULTRA COMPETITION® is mainly based on waxy maize starch which has a low glycaemic index. We offer the product without any flavouring so it can be prepared and flavoured individually according to your own preferences. Experience shows that the powder is often added to tea. Gastrointestinal problems are a common phenomenon in long distance performances. A sufficient and effective nutrition strategy is not without reason called the fourth discipline in triathlon. The gastrointestinal tract is exposed to a lot of stress factors due to the high physical strains in sport. Whatever works for short distances can on the other hand cause problems during long distance performances. Free fructose, lactose, isomaltulose and also the grain protein gluten often cause such problems. Stomach cramps, diarrhoea or bloating are symptoms which can, in the worst case, force you to stop the competition. ULTRA COMPETITION® only contains the carbohydrate sources waxy maize starch, maltodextrin, sucrose and easily available starch hydrolysates from rice and barley. Due to its composition, ULTRA COMPETITION® is particularly stomach friendly and easily digestible.
HOW DO I USE THIS PRODUCT IN THE BEST WAY?
ULTRA COMPETITION® is a suitable sport drink for long distance performances or if your gastrointestinal system is very sensitive. Ultra and long distance athletes often use concentrates. For example, trail runners carry a bottle with ULTRA COMPETITION® in powder form and pure water separate in a camelbak. Triathletes use a similar method with two different bottles, where the concentrate is prepared with a dosage of up to 180 g/litre. The recommended intake is based on the general recommendations of carbohydrates supply during exertion, approximately 60-90 g per hour, depending on intensity. Ultra- and continuous exertions over several days require a specific nutritional concept. LIQUID ENERGY SALTY, SALT CAPS and ULTRA PRO (protein solution for ultra performances) are optimal products to complete the nutritional concept during exertion.
